I went to buy a rifle today and it was put on hold thanks to the background check.
What is the waiting period for a firearm purchase?
I have never had to wait before, more than 20 minutes or so, and thought it was instant check. The place I am purchasing from stated they hold it up to seven days waiting for a reply from the FBI and if they get no response they sell it to me anyway. They said it was placed on hold for identity confirmation. Eventhough I supplied my SS#, driver's license, state and city of birth, etc.
I thought the max time they could hold it was 3 days, but would like to know what the law on this is.
